Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

For almost 130 years, members of our community have helped make our mission possible by generously sharing their time, talents and resources. We have individual and group volunteers who support us in our centers, working directly with our children and staff, help us staff special events, or lend a hand with other projects.

We welcome all volunteers, ages 10 and up, at any of our 16 centers!

There is plenty of opportunity for volunteers to help us! Those who like working with children in our centers can serve as teacher’s helpers, play buddies or reading pals; we also welcome volunteers who can provide administrative assistance or facilities clean-up; and for special events, we can use those who like to help with tasks like greeting guests, providing photography, setting up or breaking down.

• Our administrative office hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
• Our center hours of operation are 6:30 am to 6:30 pm.
• Volunteer shifts are available mornings 9:00-12:00 and afternoons 2:30-5:00.

Note: Youth volunteers (15 and under) must be accompanied by an adult.
